More sadly, 1.5% of these people have contracted HIV as a result of injecting steroids. If that figure is correct - how bloody aweful Unhappy


Better to say you got it from injecting drugs than saying you caught it from a hooker or a bloke I guess. Would not rely on primary source data for STI contraction

How did anyone ever end up in hospital jabbing 10ml of test? Was it laced with arsenic or something?


Abscess maybe?

Tried to find the puplished paper, accoring to the latest Gov publication it appears that 1 in 65 men were exposed to HIV when injecting steriods in Austraila so perhaps LBC have taken this figure out of context... even still its not a great statistic to be faced with.

Lesson- DO NOT SHARE YOUR NEEDLES!!!

This puts the 'rise' in perspective -

https://fullfact.org/health/steroid_use_increase_645_per_cent-31280

Looks like the increase is only in the number of people visiting this charity's needle exchanges, not an increase in users.

The government estimate for steroid users for 2012/13, males aged 24-59 was 59,000, and the proportion of users for that population is given elsewhere as 0.2%. In 1996 it was 0.3% and seems to have been either 0.1% or 0.2% since then. So it looks like numbers have actually been quite steady for some time.

it probably doesn't help that you get a load of roid users trying to justify it to themselves by going on about how its really safe and never kills anyone. The fact that it supposedly doesn't kill anyone doesn't necessarily mean that it isn't really bad for you. also is it coincidence that bodybuilders and other such users tend to die way too early?

don't get me wrong, im all for people doing things that they want to do but don't lie to yourself (and mentally vulnerable harry kids) pretending that its not going to have any negative side effects.

A big problem is that the local dealer in a lot of cases is a f**king numbskull who knows jack all about the juice other than how to stick a s**t load in. I remember hearing once, from said numbskull to a bunch of 15-17yr olds, how all gear does is oxygenate your blood so that you can push yourself harder.

anadrol. its the perfect chav drug, adds loads of mass (mainly to the face) and they are too scared to inject.
